The MSFRM Project

Recently, Tim worked with a group of UConn School of Business Financial Risk Management students and his client, Time Warner, on the company-sponsored MSFRM project.

The following is from the introduction of the paper that resulted from the project:

“Recent failures have permeated the global corporate landscape, and a significant portion of them can arguably be ascribed to the absence of effective Risk Management functions within those organizations, or the result of failures of their Risk Management Functions. The assumption that many organizations have awoken to this consciousness and have set up Risk Management functions to help mitigate threats to their businesses and their possible effects will not be considered far reaching. Therefore, this paper will focus on instances in which organizations have set-up functional Risk Management teams but the Risk Management functions are unable to avert disasters to their business.”
